Google Google have created a new HTTP-based protocol "SPDY" (pronounced "Speedy") to solve the problem of the client-server latency with HTTP. "We want to continue building on the web's tradition of experimentation and optimization, to further support the evolution of websites and browsers. So over the last few months, a few of us here at Google have been experimenting with new ways for web browsers and servers to speak to each other, resulting in a prototype web server and Google Chrome client with SPDY support."

Anybody who spends any time helping Google become more successful -- without being compensated -- is a moron. If Google cares enough about this project, they will FUND it.

I guess I do not get why people clamor for closed source software be opened... like they have done with JAVA in the past...

Open it only when it is ready?

Google is not going to be more successfull just because of a faster implementation of HTTP. Every internet user would benefit from a faster WWW though, and anybody contributing to such a goal, paid or unpaid, successful or unsuccessful, deserves credit and respect.
